As Dems push ‘no one is above the law’ slogan, poll finds most Americans believe the opposite

Rather than justify the unprecedented, draconian FBI raid on former president Trump’s private home, Democrats have resorted to a cheap slogan: “no one is above the law.” But according to a new poll, Democrats may want to find another messaging strategy.

The Trafalgar Group survey found that a majority of Americans believe that the justice system in America is “two-tiered,” with one set of rules for well-connected politicians, and another for everyone else, Breitbart reported.

Poll says otherwise

The poll was taken from July 24 to July 28, days before federal agents from the Biden Justice Department raided the home of his top domestic rival.

The survey found that 79.3 percent of Americans agreed that there are “two tiers of justice: one set of laws for politicians and Washington D.C. insiders vs one set of laws for everyday Americans.”

That view was shared by members of both political parties, although Republicans were more likely to believe that Washington insiders enjoy legal immunities that others do not: 87.8 percent of Republicans agreed, compared to 66.7 percent of Democrats.

11.6 percent of voters believe that everyone in Americap plays by the same rules.

The poll findings contradict messaging from Democrats, who have said the extraordinary Mar-A-Lago raid is somehow proof of the justice system working properly.

Will the raid backfire?

Republicans have been happy to supply counterexamples of prominent, well-connected Democrats receiving treatment that appeared to place them “above the law.”

Exhibit A is Hillary Clinton, who was never prosecuted for her mishandling of classified e-mails, as well as Hunter Biden, who has been credibly accused of selling access to his father in foreign countries while his dad served as vice president.

Trump, of course, never became a member of the “club” after entering politics with a promise to “drain the swamp,” and the Mar-A-Lago raid is perhaps the surest proof yet of his abiding status as an “outsider” to the establishment.

Some have already warned that the raid could boost his political standing and set the stage for a 2024 comeback.

Democrats had better hope this raid has the political outcome they intended, or it will backfire — big time.
